Parks & Natural Resource Management Section (PNRM) Meeting
IPRA's Parks & Natural Resource Management (PNRM) Section consists of park district professionals that either specialize or work in and around parks and natural resources. This is a joint event with the Midwest Institute of Park Executives (MIPE), an affiliate of IPRA. The event will begin with networking followed by the PNRM Section meeting, which will mainly consist of reports from the Section Board, committee Chairs, and IPRA staff. This will be followed by an educational session titled "Sports Field Design and Best Management Practices". The presentation will include a close-up look at the Greg Petry SportsPark, specifically topics such as big picture design, stormwater BMP design and maintenance, and operations and overview. If you are interested in joining the section or simply wish to attend for educational and networking purposes, you are encouraged to register. This is a members-only event, but guests interested learning more about IPRA are welcome to attend.
